The first of these blog about intelligence summarizes the talk of Prof. dr. Kathleen Venderikxs about what goes often wrong for people with above average intelligence on the work floor.
The first important point she makes is that there is a difference between what is commonly believed to be the profile of an above average person and what gifted people actually are.
Increasingly often I find myself talking for the first time with a client and realize from what I hear that he/she probably has an intelligence above average.
The I ask few question to make sure and with that extra confirmation I approach the topic with the client. I do this carefully, knowing out of experience that the first reaction is more often than not :'I don't really think so.'
